The Nisargadatta Gita by Pradeep Apte - Part 88

read by James Traverse

The Nisargadatta Gita
Pradeep Apte 

88. Reality prevails prior to the knowledge I am; you must stay put at
the source of your creation, at the beginning of the knowledge I am.

  Reality ever prevails; it knows no coming and going, birth and death, creation and destruction -
 these are attributes of the I am.

  On the attributeless Reality or the Absolute the I am has appeared and one day will disappear.

   At present you have wandered away from the I am, come back to it again and again and try to
abide there for some time.

 The I am is the very beginning, the source of everything, and in its wordless state is in
the closest proximity to the Reality.

  By residing in the I am you stand a better chance of arriving at your natural state than from anywhere else.
